Named after Skanda, son of Shiva, this Purana expounds doctrines and worship of Siva. It also contains legends of Siva, especially his battles with Daityas and Danavas. These are section of Yoga, Dhyana (meditation) and Jnana (knowledge). It describes Siva temples in and around Varanasi. It is encyclopaedic in character and throws light on different topics of general interest. This Purana is divided into seven Khandas: Mahesvara, Brahma, Vaisnava, Kasi, Avantya, Nagara and Prabhasa. While the first three include episodes related to Trinity, the last four deal with the holy places of pilgrimage, the meaning and significance thereof and the anecdotes illustrating the same. Skanda is the biggest among the Mahapuranas.
